‘Vivalid forever’

Erik Bosgraaf, recorder & direction
Wrocław Baroque Orchestra

For the closing concert of LIFEM 2023, recorder player and conductor Erik Bosgraaf has prepared a festive programme which is a homage to Antonio Vivaldi. In addition to the well-known Four Seasons in their own version for several recorders and orchestra, the concert also includes the well-known concerto for the smallest member of the recorder family, the ‘flautino’, and two concertos for strings. Let yourself be surprised by the virtuosity of Bosgraaf and the sparkling music of Antonio Vivaldi!
